SANFORD — Kiwanis Children’s Parkplace is getting a facelift this July. Lee County Parks and Recreation Director John Payne outlined a plan Monday for more than $27,000 in upgrades to the aging, kid-friendly park off of Tryon Street. The improvements include replacements for some of the play areas, as well as pyramid-like umbrellas to provide shade and musical equipment that allows children to play with percussion and tones. “That’s our gateway into town,” Payne said. “We want it to look more fresh and exciting.” Payne explained the plan

at a Lee County Parks and Recreation Commission meeting Monday. He said installation of the new equipment should start in the second week of July. Equipment at the children’s area, part of a larger network of family parks in Sanford, was installed in

1992, Payne said. Parents were vocal of late about urging upgrades for Kiwanis. “Their children grew up there playing on that equipment and some of them are old enough to drive cars now,” Payne said. Payne added that the county will keep some of the more popular play equipment that is in better shape, and transport some of the older items to Buchanan Park on Cameron Drive in southeast Sanford, which is without a children’s play area. The renovation work should also include more than $3,000 in repairs to the tattered fencing surrounding the Kiwanis park. “We’re pretty excited about it,” Payne said.

CHATHAM COUNTY

Tax hike would fund schools PITTSBORO (MCT) — The Chatham County manager has proposed a nearly $84.6 million budget that raises the tax rate 4.15 percent, almost all of it to fund schools. Under Manager Charlie Horne’s budget, which the county commissioners will vote on in June, the county tax rate would rise 2.5 cents to 62.72 cents per $100 of assessed property value. The owner of a house valued at $200,000 would pay $1,254.40 in county taxes. The budget increases school funding 6 percent, according to county officials. The funding needed to open Margaret B. Pollard Middle School and cover other increases in school spending is almost 2 cents of the proposed 2.5-cent tax increase, Horne said. Besides the new middle school, other facilities opening in 2010-11 will include the Chatham Community Library at Central Carolina Community College in Pittsboro, a CCCC classroom building in Siler City, a CCCC classroom building in Pittsboro, as well as Northeast Park, Northwest Park and the park at Briar Chapel. Chatham residents may comment on the proposed budget at two public hearings: n 6 p.m. June 1, Central Carolina Community College multipurpose room, Pittsboro n 6 p.m., June 2, Siler City courtroom

HILLSBOROUGH (AP) — A man accused in the shooting death of a University of North Carolina student body president pleaded guilty Monday to murder and other state charges, avoiding a trial and the possibility of a death sentence. Demario Atwater of Durham pleaded guilty at a hearing in Hillsborough to first-degree murder, armed robbery, kidnapping and other charges in the death of Eve Carson. In a plea agreement with prosecutors, Atwater agreed to life in prison without parole on the murder charge. “Although the punishment is very severe, we are grateful that it was a punishment that will allow him to live,� said Jonathan Broun, one of Atwater’s attorneys. Atwater had already pleaded guilty in April to several federal charges, including carjacking resulting in death and kidnapping. He is to be sentenced in federal court Sept. 23. His agreement with prosecutors is for a life sentence. Carson was found shot to death in a Chapel Hill neighborhood in March 2008, nearly a mile from campus. Carson’s parents and brother attended the hearing and issued a statement through Raleigh attorney Wade Smith.

Editorial Board: Bill Horner III, Publisher • Billy Liggett, Editor • R.V. Hight, Special Projects Editor

Doing the right thing is still fashionable

W

hen there’s trouble, more often than not, we tend to call in law enforcement and let them handle the situation. That’s the right thing to do. After all, they are the ones with the expertise. Does that mean that we should not get involved? Thanks to the efforts of a 14-year-old girl, a Sanford man was arrested and charged in connection with a breakin. As the man reportedly was leaving the scene, the girl had the foresight to take a picture with her cell phone as he drove away, according to investigators. That led to the

arrest. Thanks to the efforts of two Pittsboro men, a possible kidnapping was stopped in Chapel Hill. As they saw a man grab an 18-year-old woman, they blocked the exit to the parking lot and the girl was let go — not before one of the Pittsboro men was injured during the event. A man has been arrested and charged in connection with the incident. This Sanford girl and these Pittsboro men didn’t have to do what they did, but their work was crucial in helping law enforcement make arrests in both cases. As good as law enforce-

ment may be, they cannot be expected to be the sole source of protection. Sometimes we must offer our assistance in doing what is right. That’s not to say that everything always works out for the best. In the New York area last month, it was reported by the New York Post that a homeless man saved a woman from a knife attack and was himself stabbed. Unfortunately, it was more than an hour before someone came to his rescue and he died. Here was a hero, a man who gave his own life to help protect another, yet there were those who passed by and saw his body — but did noth-

ing to help. Have we become so indifferent that we’ll stand around and watch someone linger toward death without taking action? One might say that this person would still be alive if they’d only minded themselves and not interfere with the attacker. Perhaps. But is that the kind of world we’ve become? Is it the kind of world in which we want to live? We might not save the world from those intent on destroying it. Or even hurting another individual. On the other hand, we might save

harm to someone else with our vigilance. Dare we put ourselves at risk with our vigilance? Let’s face it. We no longer live in an era where we can leave our doors and windows open. Danger may lurk around the next corner. Yet, we cannot live in a state of fear. We need to live like the Sanford teen and the two Pittsboro men, as their bravery should be an inspiration for all of us. We should be thankful for those people whose courage in times of trouble help to solve crimes and perhaps keep others from harm’s way.

Scott Mooneyham Today in North Carolina Scott Mooneyham is a columnist with Capitol Press Association

The right and wrong

M

aybe the Republicans are right. Politically, they’re wrong. When the state Senate last week voted on its $19 billion state budget plan, just three Republicans joined with the Democratic majority to vote for the bill. The Senate’s Republican leadership argued that the budget bill was financially irresponsible. They predicted that it would set the stage for tougher decisions, more hardship, and more tax hikes next year. It’s hard to argue with the prediction. The state is counting on another $1.5. billion boost in federal stimulus money for the upcoming budget year. After that, the federal help is likely to begin running dry. A one-penny increase in the state sales tax is also scheduled to expire next year. That would be another $800 million hit to the bottom line. “This budget fails to position the state of North Carolina to address the $3 billion shortfall that is coming next year,” said Senate Minority Leader Phil Berger, a Rockingham County Republican. OK. But no one voted on that 201112 fiscal year budget this week. They voted on the 2010-11 state budget. And that budget cuts taxes. It doesn’t increase spending. It eliminates some programs that have been criticized for being wasteful. In other words, it does most of the things that Republicans typically say that they want from state budgeting. And they still voted against it. In fact, they even argued against a Democratic proposal to cut small business taxes by $40 million, to ensure that those small business pay no more than the 6.9 percent corporate tax rate. ... Essentially, what Senate Republicans did this week was vote against the following year’s budget this year. But their arguments about next year won’t matter this fall. They’ve delivered a political victory to Democrats desperately in need of any advantage that they can find. Now, those Republicans can look forward to seeing mailers sent to voters stating how they opposed Senate Bill 897, a bill to cut small business taxes. ... State government in North Carolina, as Berger has repeatedly pointed out, faces serious, long-term and structural financial problems. That legislators in either party are ready to address those problems, particularly this year, seems unlikely. Easing budgetary pressures over the long haul involve really hard decisions — things like structural changes to Medicaid, redefining state employee health and retirement benefits, rethinking the need for 16 public universities in this state, modernizing the state tax code. Those are the kinds of decisions that would make a lot of different groups of people plenty mad. Interestingly enough, elected officials — Republicans and Democrats — don’t like making people mad.

The GOP’s overreach

A

specter is haunting the Republican Party — though thankfully it is no longer the recently defeated Arlen Specter, who managed to be equally troublesome as both ally and foe. It is the specter of ideological overreach. Some will immediately protest that President Obama and congressional leaders are the ones who are guilty of overreach. Which is also true. Tuesday was the latest in a series of elections that have punished not just incumbents but incumbents associated with the expansion of government. Even Democrat Mark Critz, the winner of last week’s House special election in Pennsylvania, campaigned in opposition to health care reform. That reform, judged purely as politics, will be remembered as a colossal strategic error. The bank and auto bailouts were unpopular but unavoidable. Health care reform was a challenge that Obama chased. Coming soon after a large Keynesian stimulus package, the creation of a new health entitlement ignited a national debate on the role of government, confirmed an image of Democratic profligacy and polarized the electorate — all of which led to a backlash. If anyone can be considered the instigator of the tea party movement, it is Barack Obama. Most of this reaction can be best described as Americans standing athwart the Democratic Congress, yelling Stop — generally a useful enterprise. The problem comes when activists attempt to translate this tendency into a political philosophy. The tea party movement, being resistant to systemization, is resistant to characterization. But in its simplest form (and there seems to be no other form), it might be called “constitutional conservatism.” It adopts a rigorous hermeneutic: If the Constitution does not specifically mention it, the federal government isn’t allowed to do it. This represents a kind of 10th Amendment fundamentalism — a muscular form of states’ rights that would undo much of the federal role since Franklin Roosevelt, perhaps since Abraham Lincoln. This philosophy has the virtue of being easily explainable — and the drawback of being impossible. The current federal role did not grow primarily because of the statist ambitions of liberals; it grew in response to democratic choices and global challenges. Federal power advanced to rescue the elderly from penury, to enforce civil rights laws, to establish a stable regulatory framework for a modern economy, to conduct a global Cold War. The “establishment” that advanced and maintained this federal role included Harry Truman, Dwight Eisenhower and Ronald Reagan. In many areas, the federal government has gone too far, becoming bloated and burdensome. But the federal role cannot be abandoned. There is an even smaller subset of the tea party movement comprised of libertarian conservatives, representing a more developed intellectual tradition. Their goal is not

just federalism but a minimal state at home and abroad. Their commitment to individual freedom — defined as the absence of external constraint — is nearly absolute. Taxation for the purpose of redistribution is theft. The national security state does not defend liberty; it threatens it. American global commitments are just another form of big government. The closest this sect has come to serious political influence is Rand Paul’s victory in Kentucky’s Republican Senate primary this week. Paul has attempted to become more electable by distancing himself from the worst libertarian excesses. But there can be no doubt about Paul’s political orientation. In an interview the day after his primary victory, Paul could not bring himself to endorse the Americans with Disabilities Act or the Civil Rights Act of 1964. “I think there’s a lot to be desired in the Civil Rights — and indeed the truth is,” he sputtered, “I haven’t read all through it, because it was passed 40 years ago and hadn’t been a real pressing issue on the campaign on whether I’m going to vote for the Civil Rights Act.” Earlier in his campaign, however, Paul explained his view that businesses should not be forced by government to adopt anti-discrimination rules. Because he is a libertarian, Paul is unable to embrace some of the largest moral achievements of recent American history. Paul and other libertarians are not merely advocates of limited government; they are anti-government. Their objective is not the correction of error but the cultivation of contempt for government itself. There is a reason libertarianism has never been — and likely will never be — a national political force: because too many would find its utopia a nightmare. Overreach is breeding overreach. The pendulum swings wider and wider.

Today’s Prayer Lord, make me to know my end, and what is the measure of my days. (Psalm 39:4) PRAYER: Help us, Father, to use our time wisely, so we may bring glory to Your name. Amen.

To the Editor: With regard to the recent letter in The Herald, “One option to cut school budgets: cancel high school athletics,” I find it a bit naive. It would be easy to assume that the letter writer never played school sports. That may or may not be correct. Those that made the teams know what it is like to compete with teammates and for a common goal. They learn a lot about life and make lifelong connections. Many of these cross social, racial and economic lines. Those who do not make the teams can do one of two things; give up or try harder. This is a valuable life lesson as well. For certain, not making a school team is not the only time in life that adversity will come into their lives. Most students will never compete in school athletics. Certainly, they know others who do and may decide to support them during games and such. Again, this is a positive social outlet for friends and families. Sharing a great moment can be a valuable life experience as well. There are many who could care less about the athletic program at their school. Too bad; they are missing great chances to participate in life in many different forms. There are those who are forever disappointed for not making the team, but if they do not try again, they have failed twice. Please do not think that I feel that school sports are the best thing about school. I do feel they are a positive for the school and the community. With so many negatives grabbing the headlines, why would you suggest eliminating one that works very well to enhance a community? I am not certain what the overall expenditures are for athletics in Lee County. I am not sure how it compares with the AIG expenditures that are getting deserved scrutiny. I am sure that cutting programs that work brings everyone down. The return on the expense cannot be measured. The letter writer certainly has not been near a gym, stadium, or field on game night in Lee County lately. These are the places to be. MIKE NEAL Sanford

Todd McCulloch

SANFORD — Mary Gwendolyn “Gwen� Howard McIver died peacefully at the Hock Pavilion in Durham early Sunday, May 23, 2010. Gwen’s sense of humor, dignity, resolve and faith were gifts of immeasurable value to all who were with her during her illness. Born on January 17, 1926 in Sanford, she was the youngest of five children born to Richard Thomas and Helen Paschal Howard. She graduated from Sanford High School at sixteen, attended Greensboro College, Eastman School of Music in Rochester, N.Y., and graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a degree in music. Gwen was an accomplished pianist and organist. She taught piano at her home for sixty years and was organist at the First Presbyterian Church in Sanford for forty one years. She played for numerous weddings and funerals, and was active in the local music and arts community. Prior to the onset of her illness, she remained active as a piano teacher and had planned her end-of-year recital McIver for the first week in June. Music and interest in others was her passion. She was happiest when teaching and get-ting to know her students. Gwen was often allied with the downtrodden, and steadfast in her sense of honor and integrity. She was awarded Volunteer of the Year for her commitment to inmates at the Sanford Advancement Center through the Yoke Fellow Program. She felt exceptionally blessed and therefore accountable for the welfare of others. Gwen was predeceased by her parents, her husband William “Bill� Dunlap McIver, sister Helen Howard Parker and brothers Wilson Howard and Robert Howard, and family friend Beatrice Cameron. She is survived by her children, John McMillan McIver and his wife Wendy Excell McIver and their children Meredith, Caroline and Jack; Beth McIver Wickham and her husband Leslie Oliver Wickham and their sons Leslie III and Patrick; Marshall McIver and her husband Greg Murray and their daughters Kate and Allison Murray, and Robert Howard McIver and his wife Joy Gragg McIver and their son Gantt. She is also survived by her brother Leland Paschal “Pat� Howard and his wife Averill, sisters-in-law Nancy McIver Griffin and Lois McIver Winstead, and many nieces and nephews. Funeral services will be held at First Presbyterian Church in Sanford on Wednesday, May 26, at 11 a.m. followed by visitation with the family in the church’s Harper Center. Interment will be held at Gulf Presbyterian Church at 2 p.m. In lieu of flowers, please send memorial contributions to First Presbyterian Church, 212 Hawkins Ave., Sanford, N.C. 27330, or Duke Hospice, 4321 Medical Park Drive, Durham, N.C. 27704.

ately impresses you with testimonials and specific information about results for her students. Are results driving her success? Every week in the United States, nearly 12,000 people start a business. Seven out of ten new firms make it at least two years, and about half survive five years. It’s a risk but the payoff is huge: the satisfaction of building something from scratch, the joy of providing jobs and trying an idea, the thrill of making money on your own. These are the feelings business owners describe when asked why they started their business. But, according to research, the single characteristic common to successful small business owners is: focus – the ability to zero

in on a problem, analyze it, make a decision and move on to the next opportunity. While our economy is still recovering, opening a business might not seem like a good idea. But according to an article by Rhonda Abrams, president of The Planning Shop, publisher of books for entrepreneurs, now is a great to start a business. In fact, 16 of the 30 companies that make up the Dow industrial average were started during a recession or depression — companies like Procter & Gamble, Disney, Alcoa, McDonald’s, General Electric and Johnson & Johnson. Abrams reminds us that during the mid-seventies, at a time when the United States was at the end of an extremely

costly war that had divided the country, gas prices jumped by nearly 50 percent in two years and consumer confidence dropped to an all-time low. A terrible time to start a business, right? Here are just a few of the companies started in those awful years of the early 1970’s: Supercuts, Chili’s, Cablevision, Industrial Light & Magic, Famous Amos cookies, Oakley and, oh, yes, a small company called Microsoft. The Chamber constantly trumpets Lee County as a great place to live and work ‌ and start a business. If you think you have what it takes, there are plenty of resources here to help you get started. Good luck and Happy Small Business Week!

911

Monday afternoon. 911 operators received calls at approximately the same time Saturday morning from James Thompson Jr. and his friend Shannon Thompson. Both were making a stop at the residence when the bodies were found. “I was sitting in the car for a minute and then next thing you know James comes out and he’s telling me that Richard killed his family,� Shannon Thompson tells the 911 operator. “I’ve never seen anything like that.� Shannon Thompson said Richard Thompson had a history of drug problems. “His brother’s always been kind of crazy to me,� she told the operator. “Oh my God, I never thought he’d do anything like this though.� Throughout the calls, which were made at approximately the same time Saturday morning, the sounds of shouting and barking dogs can be heard in the background. Shannon Thompson

told the operator she believed the killings happened Friday night based on the state of the bodies. “There’s no doubt about it, (Richard Thompson’s) dead,� she said. “His feet are purple. His brains literally are all on the bed.� At one point during his call, James Thompson Jr. calms down enough to describe the bloody scene to the 911 operator and check his mother for signs of breathing. “I’m getting a little bit calmer because I’m used to seeing stuff like this on TV,� he tells the operator. The tape also captures a rattled Shannon Thompson as she describes the same scene to another operator. “I can’t believe this,� she says. “I’ve never seen anything so evil in my life.� McNeill said the investigation is ongoing, adding that Harnett County deputies had been called to the residence before. McNeill declined Monday to say the reasons for the previous calls.

Perdue says new highway projects fund needed

GOP doesn’t like tea party candidate By MIKE BAKER Associated Press Writer

RALEIGH (AP) — Gov. Beverly Perdue said the creation of a new dedicated fund to build urgent road and other transporation projects in North Carolina is necessary to keep the state’s economic engines roaring in the decades ahead. Perdue, several mayors and Board of Transportation members attended a news conference on Monday to urge the Legislature to approve the North Carolina Mobility Fund that Perdue proposed in her budget last month. The effort would raise money in part from higher fees and more car sales taxes to ease congestion with projects of statewide significance hard to fund under the current road-funding formula. The Senate didn’t put the idea in the budget bill it approved last week but Perdue was hopeful it would be considered during this year’s session.

Jury deliberations on hold in 1972 murder trial JACKSONVILLE (AP) — The trial of a 57-year-old former small-town police chief accused of killing a Marine 37 years ago in North Carolina is on hold. The Daily News of Jacksonville reported Monday that a juror was in the hospital. The jury had been in deliberations since Friday. Superior Court Judge Ken Crow postponed the trial until Tuesday morning to determine how long the juror would be away. Hayden faces murder and conspiracy charges for what prosecutors say was an ambush triggered by a love triangle involving Miller’s wife. Crow dismissed the conspiracy charge last week after he ruled the state lacked evidence. The case remained unsolved until Miller’s sister contacted a newspaper reporter looking into cold cases. The resulting investigation found new information.

Education officials decry state spending cuts

RALEIGH (AP) — Spokesmen representing North Carolina teachers, school boards and the PTA are urging legislators to spare schools from major spending cuts this year. They reacted on Monday to the $19 billion budget the state Senate approved last week and the House began considering Monday. House leaders are planning $360 million in education cuts, about twice as deep as the Senate’s plan. State schools superintendent June Atkinson says schools should come before filling potholes or other government priorities. North Carolina Association of Educators president Sheri Strickland says school layoffs mean teachers remaining on the job can’t give children the best education possible.

Bald eagle born in captivity may be a mom HUNTERSVILLE (AP) — A bald eagle born at the Carolina Raptor Center in North Carolina has been spotted in Alabama. The Charlotte Observer reports Lola might be a mother. She and her brother Len were born in captivity at the center in Huntersville in 2006. The young eagles were fitted with small transmitters and released. They were monitored for a couple of years, but then no one kept up with them. A University of North Carolina Charlotte ornithologist released another eagle this month and looked up Len and Lola, now 4 years old.

SANDHILLS ORTHODONTICS

RALEIGH — Republican officials are taking the rare step of trying to derail the campaign of one of their own candidates — a risky move for party leaders trying to harness the power of the tea party movement while not letting it grow beyond their control. Tim D’Annunzio, a congressional candidate in North Carolina’s most competitive district, has run an anti-establishment campaign with vows to dismantle entire branches of federal government. His ideas have drawn support from tea party activists, and he has raised more money from individuals than his GOP rival while also contributing more than $1 million to his own campaign. Republican leaders in both Raleigh and Washington, however, are worried about his candidacy as he heads into a primary runoff, exposing tensions between the party’s core and the tea party movement on its outskirts. They’re publi-

cizing court documents about D’Annunzio’s past legal, martial and business troubles and denouncing him as unfit for office. “Mr. D’Annunzio has disqualified himself by his background, his record and his behavior,� said Tom Fetzer, North Carolina’s Republican Party chairman. He said the GOP embraces the tea party but doesn’t believe a person with such a checkered past should be the party’s nominee. In Hoke County divorce records, D’Annunzio’s wife said in 1995 that he had claimed to be the Messiah, had traveled to New Jersey to raise his stepfather from the dead, believed God would drop a 1,000mile high pyramid as the New Jerusalem on Greenland and found the Ark of the Covenant in Arizona. A doctor’s evaluation the following month said D’Annunzio used marijuana almost daily, had been living with another woman for several months, had once been in drug treatment

ton are willing to go to any length and use any unscrupulous tactic to try to destroy somebody,� he said. “They think that they’re losing their control over the Republican party. People like me have refused to leave the party and decided instead to reform it and bring it back to its roots.� D’Annunzio was the leader in a Republican primary vote earlier this month but didn’t get enough votes to avoid a runoff. He faces former television sportscaster Harold Johnson in a runoff vote June 22 for the 8th District, which extends from Charlotte to Fayetteville. The GOP is targeting Democratic Rep. Larry Kissell, who won the seat two years ago after many years of Republican control. “With Tim D’Annunzio, you have a lot of serious issues here that raise grave doubts about his ability to beat congressman Kissell,� said Andy Sere, a spokesman with the National Republican Congressional Committee.

for heroin dependence and was jailed a couple of times as a teenager. The doctor concluded that his religious beliefs were not delusional. A judge wrote in a child support ruling a few years later that D’Annunzio was a self-described “religious zealot� who believed the government was the “Antichrist.� The judge said he was willfully failing to make child support payments. D’Annunzio declined Monday to discuss the specifics of his past and refused to confirm or deny the details of the court documents. He acknowledged having “a troubled upbringing� but said he changed his life 16 years ago when he had a religious conversion. The documents from the doctor assessing him during the divorce indicated that he was still smoking marijuana daily after the religious conversion, something D’Annunzio would not discuss. “The bigger story is that the power brokers in Raleigh and in Washing-

RALEIGH

Tote withdraws as mental health director RALEIGH (AP) — The state’s troubled mental health system faced another setback Monday when an advocate for the mentally ill named last week to run the agency withdrew from the post due to a flap over some tax problems at the group he ran. John Tote, who until recently was the executive director of the Mental Health Association in North Carolina,

and Health and Human Services Secretary Lanier Cansler announced that he won’t become the next state mental health director. Tote’s departure came on the same day he was slated to report to work for the state. Cansler and Tote said public discussion about payroll tax issues was too distracting at a time when the focus needs to be on helping patients and their families.

NATION BRIEFS

Fed: Government canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t push BP aside

COVINGTON, La. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Obama administrationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s point man on the oil spill rejected the notion of removing BP and taking over the crisis Monday, saying the government has neither the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expertise nor its deep-sea equipment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To push BP out of the way, it would raise the question, to replace them with what?â&#x20AC;? Coast Guard Commandant Thad Allen, who is heading the federal response to the spill, said at a White House briefing. The White House is facing increasing questions about why the government canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t assert more control over the handling of the catastrophe, which unfolded after a BP offshore drilling rig blew up April 20. All of BPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attempts to stop the leak have failed, despite the oil giantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s use of joystick-operated submarine robots that can operate at depths no human could withstand. Millions of gallons of brown crude are now coating birds and other wildlife and fouling the Louisiana marshes. BP is pinning its hopes of stopping the gusher on yet another technique never tested 5,000 feet underwater: a â&#x20AC;&#x153;top kill,â&#x20AC;? in which heavy mud and cement would be shot into the blown-out well to plug it up. The top kill could begin as early as Wednesday, with BP CEO Tony Hayward giving it a 60 to 70 percent chance of success. Allen said federal law dictated that BP had to operate the cleanup, with the government overseeing its efforts.

BP PLC CEO Tony Hayward asks members of the media to step back as he walks along Fourchon Beach in Port Fourchon, La., Monday. Hayward visited the beach to observe efforts to clean oil that washed ashore from last monthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Deepwater Horizon oil rig explosion in the Gulf of Mexico. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re exhausting every technical means possible to deal with that leak,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am satisfied with the coordination thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going on.â&#x20AC;? Interior Secretary Ken Salazar suggested over the weekend that the government could intervene aggressively if BP wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t delivering. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we find that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not doing what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re supposed to be doing, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll push them out of the way appropriately,â&#x20AC;? he said. But asked about that comment Monday, Allen said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more of a metaphor.â&#x20AC;? Allen said BP and the government are working closely together, with the government holding veto power and adopting an â&#x20AC;&#x153;inquisitorialâ&#x20AC;? stand toward the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ideas. The commandant also said the government has the authority to tell BP what to do, and such orders carry the force of law.

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano also took a more measured tone at a news conference Monday in Galliano, La., with Salazar and six U.S. senators who had flown over the coast to see the damage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We continue to hold BP responsible as the responsible party, but we are on them, watching them,â&#x20AC;? she said. BP said it is doing all it can to stop the leak. Its chief operating officer, Doug Suttles, made the rounds of network morning news shows to say that the company understands people are frustrated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Clearly Secretary Salazar is telling us that we need to do this as expediently as we can,â&#x20AC;? Suttles said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And of course we are.â&#x20AC;? Hayward, BPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chief executive, walked along oil-soaked Fourchon Beach and said he had

underestimated the possible environmental effects. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m as devastated as you are by what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen here today,â&#x20AC;? Hayward told reporters after he spoke with cleanup workers in white overalls and yellow boots, some shoveling oily sand into garbage cans. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are going to do everything in our power to prevent any more oil from coming ashore, and we will clean every last drop up and we will remediate all of the environmental damage.â&#x20AC;? Mark Kellstrom, an analyst with Summit, N.J.-based Strategic Energy Research, said time might be running out for BP to continue calling the shots. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The rhetoric is growing up in Washington for the politicians to kick out BP and let the government take over,â&#x20AC;? Kellstrom said, though he added that it would be a mistake.

Obama working on a compromise on gays in military WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A proposal to step up the repeal of the ban on gays and lesbians serving openly in the military but still allow the Pentagon time â&#x20AC;&#x201D; perhaps even years â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to implement new policies was being discussed Monday by administration officials and gay rights activists. The White House had hoped lawmakers would delay action until Pentagon officials had completed their study so fellow Democrats would not face criticism that they moved too quickly or too far ahead of public opinion in this election year. Instead, administration officials now expect Congress to move ahead this week even though advocates on both sides say itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not clear there are enough votes to lift the 1993 ban. Under the proposal emerging from talks at the White House, Congress would remove the Clinton-era â&#x20AC;&#x153;donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ask, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tellâ&#x20AC;? law even as the Pentagon continues an ongoing review of the system. Implementation of policy for gays serving openly would still require the approval of President Barack Obama, Defense Secretary Robert Gates and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Adm. Mike Mullen. How long implementation might take was not known.

Blumenthal apologizes for Vietnam mistakes HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Criticized for saying he â&#x20AC;&#x153;regretsâ&#x20AC;? misstatements he made about his military service during the Vietnam War, Connecticut Senate candidate Richard Blumenthal is now apologizing. On Monday and late the night before, the Democrat told various media outlets that he made mistakes and is sorry for them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think he wants to put this behind him. He wants to start getting back to talking about

the issues that matter most to the people of Connecticut and start talking about who is going to best represent the people of Connecticut in Washington,â&#x20AC;? said Maura Downes, a campaign spokeswoman. The stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commander of the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the U.S., Richard G. DiFederico, had issued a statement Friday demanding an apology from Blumenthal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This issue isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t about Mr. Blumenthalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great service to the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s veteran and military population, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about him refusing to apologize for claiming to be something he is not,â&#x20AC;? DiFederico said in his written statement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The attorney general was considered one of the best friends a veteran could have in our state. It is a true shame that he let a false claim of Vietnam service change all that.â&#x20AC;?

Violent, property crimes both down for 3rd-straight year

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Crime in the United States dropped dramatically in 2009, bucking a historical trend that links rising crime rates to economic woes. Property crimes and violent offenses each declined about 5 percent, the FBI said Monday, citing reports from law enforcement coast to coast. It was the third straight year of declines, and this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drops were even steeper than those of 2007 and 2008, despite the recession. There were words of caution from experts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fabulous news, but I would draw an analogy to global warming: Even if you believe the long-term trend is increasing temperatures, it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a cold year,â&#x20AC;? said Jonathan P. Caulkins, a professor of public policy at Carnegie Mellon Universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Heinz College. Last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decline was 5.5 percent for violent crime, including 7.2 percent for murders. The rate for property crime was down 4.9 percent, the seventh consecutive drop for that category.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Lostâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; finale stirs much debate By FRAZIER MOORE AP Television Writer

NEW YORK â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Can we all agree that Jack Shephard is dead? That he died in a bamboo grove on the lost island, gravely injured after saving it, his eye seen in close-up shutting as the seriesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; final shot? There may not be much more that viewers will agree on after Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gargantuan, challenging conclusion to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lost.â&#x20AC;? For six seasons, the ABC mystical thriller has kept its audience guessing and arguing as well as entertained. But after the much-awaited finale, criticism and debate went into hyperdrive. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One word. just amazing. the circle of life. wow. just wow,â&#x20AC;? cheered franciSpace among a flurry of Twitter postings Monday morning. And linenlimbs reported, â&#x20AC;&#x153;my dish network box wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t turn on today; i think it committed suicide after that devastatingly beautiful episode.â&#x20AC;? On the other hand, tomuky declared, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thank goodness its over. A show with a million plot lines in a losing attempt to appear as an intelligent show.â&#x20AC;? On YouTube, viewers rushed to upload their video responses to the episode. One â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lostâ&#x20AC;? fan, her

The last series finale to fuel such fierce anticipation and spark such after-the-fact dispute was, of course, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Sopranos,â&#x20AC;? in 2007. Did Tony die in the restaurant a nanosecond after the final blackout, or did he carry on his mobster life with nothing changed? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sopranosâ&#x20AC;? fans still disagree. Now, to no oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s surprise, the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lostâ&#x20AC;? finale has joined its notorious, celebrated ranks. But can we all agree

that, even now, viewers werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t given the answer to one long-standing, seemingly fundamental question: Where was the doggone island? Good. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s settled. Or not. The two-and-onehalf-hour special drew an average audience of 13.5 million viewers, beating NBCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Celebrity Apprenticeâ&#x20AC;? finale by 4.2 million viewers, according to the Nielsen Co. The two-hour retrospective that preceded the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lostâ&#x20AC;? finale drew an audience of 9.8 million viewers. But mysteries continued to plague much of that audience Monday in the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lostâ&#x20AC;? hangover. Sure, Jack was dead. But what about the other castaways? What was the state

of their mortality, both on the island and in the socalled sideways universe that showed their parallel existence elsewhere, mostly in Los Angeles? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Both stories seem to be part of their limbo, part of their purgatory,â&#x20AC;? said Chris Seay, author of â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Gospel According to â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Lost.â&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; The finale, he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t what I hoped.â&#x20AC;? Pointing to the pledge from â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lostâ&#x20AC;? producers that the island wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a purgatory for the victims of the Oceanic airliner crash, Seay suggested that the outcome of the series amounted to â&#x20AC;&#x153;sort of a misdirection.â&#x20AC;? He cited the finaleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s closing scenes in an L.A. church where many of the former castaways â&#x20AC;&#x201D; all of them dead â&#x20AC;&#x201D; convened, with Jack, apparently, the guest of honor. With light flooding the sanctuary, it seemed a vision of a blissful afterlife, or the gateway leading there. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was the most compelling part of the show â&#x20AC;&#x201D; people that you love being present together,â&#x20AC;? Seay said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They spoke about going to the place where you can be with the people that you love. This is how we speak of heaven, but in the most common understanding, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a place where people that you love are reunited.â&#x20AC;?

Lohan ordered to wear alcohol monitoring bracelet BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Lindsay Lohan left court Monday with a heavy new piece of jewelry, but it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t her favorite kind of bling. Lohan sported an ugly, alcoholmonitorLohan ing ankle bracelet that came with tough restrictions on her probation that could cut into her career plans. The measures were ordered after Lohan angered Superior Court Judge Marsha Revel by failing to show up for a hearing last week in Beverly Hills and instead attended the Cannes Film Festival in France. Photos from Cannes showed the actress partying on a yacht into the late hours on the day she was supposed to be in court in Beverly Hills. A bench warrant was issued for her arrest then lifted when her lawyer posted bail and Lohan flew back to the United States over the weekend. Lohanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lawyer said the actress had her passport stolen in Canne and couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t travel in time to attend the hearing. Lohan, wearing a dark gray pants suit, arrived in court a few minutes late and appeared somber and concerned when she conferred with her attorney about the move to attach the bracelet and require drug and alcohol testing every week

LOS ANGELES (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The husband of Brittany Murphy was found dead by his mother-in-law late Sunday at the Los Angeles home he shared with the late actress, the coronerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office said. Simon Monjackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death was reported as a possible heart attack and appeared to be from Monjack natural causes, Los Angeles County Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter said. Monjack was 39. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was discovered by Brittanyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mom as being unresponsiveâ&#x20AC;? in the master bedroom of the Hollywood Hills home at about 9:40 p.m. Sunday, Winter said. Sharon Murphy called paramedics, who pronounced him dead. There were no signs of foul play or physical injury to his body, Winter said. Prescription medications belonging to Monjack were found in his bedroom, but there was no immediate indication that he overdosed, Winter said. An autopsy was planned Tuesday, but a final cause of death would await results of planned toxicology tests, Winter said. Murphy died last Dec. 20 after collapsing in the home. At his wifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funeral, a visibly emotional Monjack talked about their relationship and called her his best friend and soul mate. The two married in 2007. He had said they were planning a family and contemplating a move to New York. Monjack is credited as producer and co-writer of the 2001 film â&#x20AC;&#x153;Two Days, Nine Livesâ&#x20AC;? and executive producer of the 2006â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Factory Girl.â&#x20AC;? Murphy, best known for her major roles in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Clueless,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Girl Interruptedâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;8 Mile,â&#x20AC;? died at age 32. The Los Angeles County coronerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office concluded her death was accidental but likely preventable.

Governor hopeful denies affair BY JIM DAVENPORT Associated Press Writer

COLUMBIA â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Tea party favorite Nikki Haley, a Republican candidate for governor whose campaign gained momentum with recent endorsements from Sarah Palin and Jenny Sanford, vehemently denied allegations Monday that she had an inappropriate relationship with a political blogger several years ago. Haley, a legislator vying to become the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first female chief executive and replace disgraced Gov. Mark Sanford, called the claim posted on the bloggerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s site Monday a smear. She questioned the timing two weeks before the primary, saying it was an attempt to derail her campaign, once considered a long-shot. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have been 100 percent faithful to my husband throughout our 13 years of marriage. This claim against me is categorically and totally false,â&#x20AC;? Haley, a 38-year-old mother of two, said in a statement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is quite simply South Carolina politics at its worst.â&#x20AC;? The claim came from Will Folks, a conservative blogger who previously served as Sanfordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spokesman. Folks said the

South Carolina Republican gubernatorial hopeful Nikki Haley, left, and former South Carolina first lady Jenny Sanford campaign on Friday in Charleston, S.C. relationship took place in 2007 when he did communications work for Haley, including writing speeches and news releases. He offered no proof of it and refused to go into any details. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not going to paint pictures,â&#x20AC;? he said in an exclusive interview with The Associated Press on the condition his statements would not be published before the allegation was posted on his blog. Folks pleaded guilty to criminal domestic violence in 2005 and left the Sanford administration around that time. He is now a political consultant and runs FITSNews. com, a conservative site

that features occasionally insightful commentary, thinly sourced stories of state political intrigue and photos of women in bikinis. Folksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; allegation comes nearly a year after the governor famously vanished from the state for five days, reappearing from a trip

to Argentina to admit to an affair with a woman he later called his â&#x20AC;&#x153;soul mate.â&#x20AC;? The scandal ended Sanfordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s marriage and led to calls for his resignation. He is term-limited and leaves office in January; in years past he had backed Haleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s political aspirations, and his ex-wife campaigned with her earlier this month. Political scientist Neal Thigpen said he thinks most political activists wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe Folks, but some tea party supporters could be swayed to support another candidate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It seems to me the whole thing is designed to stop Rep. Haleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s momentum,â&#x20AC;? said Thigpen, a Francis Marion University professor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Nikkiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s word against Will Folksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, I know who Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d believe. ...

US, South Korea to test military force

Smugglers peddle ultra-pure heroin

WASHINGTON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Obama administration on Monday announced plans for two major military exercises off the Korean peninsula in a show of force aimed at North Korea, which has been blamed by investigators for a deadly torpedo attack on a South Korean warship. The White House called U.S. support for South Korea â&#x20AC;&#x153;unequivocalâ&#x20AC;? and said in a statement that President Obama had directed military commanders to work with the South â&#x20AC;&#x153;to ensure readiness and to deter future aggression.â&#x20AC;? North Korean leaders have denied responsibility and warned against any retaliation, but Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on Monday blamed the North for the crisis. U.S. officials hope a united international response, coupled with a display of military might, will deter North Koreaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s neo-Stalinist regime from ratcheting up tensions.

WINFIELD, Mo. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Mexican drug smugglers are increasingly peddling a form of ultra-potent heroin that sells for as little as $10 a bag and is so pure it can kill unsuspecting users instantly, sometimes before they even remove the syringe from their veins. An Associated Press review of drug overdose data shows that so-called â&#x20AC;&#x153;black tarâ&#x20AC;? heroin - named for its dark, gooey consistency - and other forms of the drug are contributing to a spike in overdose deaths across the nation and attracting a new generation of users who are caught off guard by its potency. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We found people who snorted it lying face-down with the straw lying next to them,â&#x20AC;? said Patrick Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Neil, coroner in suburban Chicagoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Will County, where annual heroin deaths have nearly tripled - from 10 to 29 - since 2006.

NASH HAS BROKEN NOSE, SAYS HE IS FINE PHOENIX (AP) — Steve Nash has a broken nose but says he doesn’t expect it to be a problem for him in Game 4 of the Western Conference finals. The Phoenix playmaker sustained the slight fracture in a fourth-quarter collision with Derek Fisher in the Suns’ 118109 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday night. He spoke briefly with reporters after practice on Monday before leaving to have the nose put back in place by a specialist. Nash played the fourth quarter of Game 4 of the Western Conference semifinals with his right eye swollen shut after taking an inadvertent elbow from San Antonio’s Tim Duncan. “I’m lucky. I’ve had a couple bumps or bruises that haven’t affected my play,” Nash said. “Those don’t bother you. It’s the ones that limit you that you hope you don’t have to face.”

NFL NFL MEETINGS TO TALK NEW YORK SUPER BOWL

IRVING, Texas (AP) — Ready for an outdoor Super Bowl in cold, possibly snowy weather? Thinking that new overtime rule adopted for playoff games should be used in the regular season, too? NFL owners will discuss those things and more on Tuesday during meetings in the Dallas area. The owners will pick the site of the 2014 Super Bowl. It will be either Miami, Tampa or the new $1.6 billion Meadowlands stadium that will become home to the Jets and Giants next season. That stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., won’t have a roof and a February Super Bowl would probably be a cold one.

NHL KEITH LOSES TEETH BUT BLACKHAWKS WIN

CHICAGO (AP) — It takes more than a puck in the face to keep Duncan Keith off the ice for the Chicago Blackhawks — even when he loses seven teeth. Chicago’s top defenseman was hit by a puck off the stick San Jose’s Patrick Marleau during the second period of Sunday’s 4-2 victory over the Sharks that clinched the Western Conference title and a trip to the Stanley Cup finals. Keith returned to the game and finished with a game-high 29 minutes, two seconds of ice time. He lost four bottom teeth and three more on top. Keith was able to return after getting some injections in his mouth to numb the pain and even got an assist on Dave Bolland’s game-tying goal in the second.

CLEVELAND — Of the many reasons the Cleveland Cavaliers had for firing coach Mike Brown after five seasons without an NBA title, one mattered most. They can’t lose LeBron James. Less than two weeks after their stunning, secondround loss to Boston in the NBA playoffs, Brown the Cavaliers fired Brown on Monday, an expected move that perhaps indicates the team believes it can re-sign James, the two-time MVP and free agent-in-waiting. Brown was the most successful coach in franchise history. In five seasons, he led the Cavs to the playoffs every year, to the finals in 2007 and to 127 wins in the past two seasons. But Brown failed to win a championship, and after Cleveland’s second straight early exodus from the postseason — a collapse that included two blowout losses at home and dissension in the Cavs’ locker room — and with James about to explore free agency, owner Dan Gilbert decided to make a change.

NASCAR deserves some credit By JENNA FRYER AP Auto Racing Writer

CHARLOTTE — It’s been easy the last several seasons to kick NASCAR as it struggled with sinking ratings, slipping sponsorships and, worst of all, lousy racing. It’s not fair, though, to talk only about what’s gone wrong, particularly at a time when NASCAR is doing many things right. Those positive turns are often overlooked, partly because it’s far more fun to flog all the flaws than it is to dish out credit for making positive change. It’s been almost a year since NASCAR opened its ears in two town-hall style meeting between top executives and the competitors. The sport was in trouble — the economy had wreaked havoc on everyone’s bottom line, and nobody was all that thrilled with the competition — and NASCAR was willing to listen to ideas. There was initial concern that those May 26 meetings were nothing more lip service. Looking

back, they were actually a major turning point for the industry because actual changes have followed. NASCAR switched to the popular double-file restart format two weeks after the town-hall meeting, and plans to eliminate the wing that so offended race fans began taking shape. When NASCAR received considerable backlash over the watered-down October race at Talladega, the “boys, have at it” policy was born. Fans displeasure with never knowing what time a race was going to begin was fixed by the consistent start times policy that went into effect this season, and the decision was made to put the entire Chase for the Sprint Cup championship on ESPN to streamline yet another aspect. Struggling at this time last year with the fallout from Jeremy Mayfield’s failed drug test and the confusion many drivers claimed they had over NASCAR’s toughened new policy, a list of

Sports Federer, Williams coast in first round

PARIS (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The French-speaking voice booming through loudspeakers at Court Philippe Chatrier recited Roger Federerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bona fides during prematch introductions, detailing his six titles at Wimbledon, five at the U.S. Open, four at the Australian Open and then, reaching a crescendo, concluded this way: â&#x20AC;&#x153;One at Roland Garros, here, last year!â&#x20AC;? Federer smiled. Fans roared, many rising to applaud. Playing at the French Open as defending champion for the first time, Federer gave â&#x20AC;&#x2122;em plenty to cheer about Monday, dipping into his considerable repertoire of shotmaking in a 6-4, 6-1, 6-2 victory over 71st-ranked Peter Luczak of Australia. With the end result far from in doubt, Federer turned the outing into a glorified practice session. He closed one extended exchange by slicing a backhand with so much spin that, after landing, the ball darted back toward the net, away from Luczak. Federer acknowledged the cheers by raising an index finger, lest somebody forget heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s No. 1. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If it was anyone else, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be getting pretty angry,â&#x20AC;? said Luczak, whose career mark in Grand Slam matches fell to 514. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He just had me on a string and just (was) toying with me at the end. I think he was enjoying it.â&#x20AC;? Federer made only 11 unforced errors, won 50 of 64 points on his serve and faced one break point, which he saved. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was pretty relaxed,â&#x20AC;? said Federer, who can tie Pete Samprasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; record of 286 total weeks at No. 1 in the rankings June 7. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was like a perfect match to get off the French Open campaign, really.â&#x20AC;? Other top players â&#x20AC;&#x201D; even those who also won â&#x20AC;&#x201D; were less pleased with their performances on Day 2, when a searing sun carried the temperature into the 80s and made the most grueling of tennisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; surfaces even more of a test of fitness. The No. 1-ranked woman, Serena Williams, for example, found little to smile about after following Federer into the main stadium and beating Stefanie Voegele of Switzerland 7-6 (2), 6-2. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I definitely didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel good about it,â&#x20AC;? said Williams, who counts the 2002 French Open among her 12 major championships. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At least I won. I think Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m still in the tournament; thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what matters.â&#x20AC;?

Los Angeles Lakersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Kobe Bryant, center, drives past Phoenix Sunsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Robin Lopez during the second half of Game 3 of the Western Conference finals Sunday in Phoenix.

Lakers expect to better attack Sunsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; zone PHOENIX (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Losing one game in Phoenix was tolerable for the Los Angeles Lakers. Two losses and things start to get uncomfortable for the reigning NBA champions. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s safe to say that coach Phil Jackson was giving his team a refresher course on how to beat a zone defense when the Lakers worked out at US Airways Center on Monday after Phoenix employed the strategy to great success in its 118-109 victory on Sunday night. The Suns can square the series at 2-2 with another home win in Game 4 on Tuesday night. Jackson said he had never seen a team use the zone so much in a playoff game since the NBA legalized the defense in the 2001-02 season, not that Kobe Bryant seemed all that concerned. When asked if a day of practice would be enough to work out how to attack the zone, he answered sarcastically. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nah,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doomed.â&#x20AC;? The Suns used the zone

much of the second quarter and the entire second half. Phoenix coach Alvin Gentry said that was more than he anticipated but he stuck with it because it worked when nothing else had against the Lakers, who averaged 126 points and shot 58 percent in the seriesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; first two games. There were inferences on Monday that the zone is somehow an â&#x20AC;&#x153;unmanlyâ&#x20AC;? defense, that real teams play man-to-man. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to try every way we can to find a situation where we can win,â&#x20AC;? Gentry said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatever that takes, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what it is. If we have to play our â&#x20AC;&#x2122;girlie zoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; as somebody said, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll play our â&#x20AC;&#x2122;girlie zone.â&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Steve Nashâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nose and Andrew Bynumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s knee were main subjects of discussion on Monday. Bynum got in early foul trouble and had just two points and two rebounds in 7 1/2 minutes on Sunday night. After the game, Jackson talked about perhaps having the big center, who has a small meniscus tear in his right knee, sit out the next game. But Jackson said on Monday that Bynum would play. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I talked to him this morning. He feels like heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s OK,â&#x20AC;? the Lakers coach said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was worried that he was impinging on his ability to play by concern about his health and status, and he says heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s OK.â&#x20AC;?

banned substances was created and made available to teams at the start of this season. NASCAR chairman Brian France and his top management team spent the offseason individually meeting with every race team to discuss the tract they were taking in a bid to stop the bleeding. For a series that had forever been run like a dictatorship, this open attitude was a refreshing change. And if there was any doubt that NASCAR was willing to do whatever was needed to save the show, it responded to the many customers left dissatisfied when the first race of the year, the exhibition Budweiser Shootout, ended under caution. Entered into competition just four days before the seasonopening Daytona 500, the new policy of three attempts at a green-whitecheckered flag ending has radically improved the racing this year. So here they are, a year later, coming off one of the most celebratory

weeks in NASCAR history. The glitzy $195 million Hall of Fame opened this month amid a tremendous amount of anticipation. NASCAR celebrated all of last week with numerous Hall of Fame events, then moved to the race track for Saturday nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual All-Star race. The racing, like it has been for most of the year, was much improved. Granted, the field had to first figure out how to catch four-time defending series champion Jimmie Johnson, but ever since the wing was replaced by the traditional spoiler in March, olâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Double J hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seemed so invincible anymore. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;have at itâ&#x20AC;? policy, designed to allow drivers to self-police on the track while also encouraging more emotion, again gave NASCAR a juicy storyline when teammates Denny Hamlin and Kyle Busch raced each other hard for a shot at the win. When that aggressiveness led to a race-ending crash for Busch, he threatened to kill Hamlin over his team radio (lovely to see you again, â&#x20AC;&#x153;oldâ&#x20AC;? Kyle!).

to compare to yet another staggering collection of accolades: A home playoff game, and the mantle of now, after 25 games, the role as — gasp — the favorite? Slow down a little there, guys. Just for a moment. Because while the Yellow Jackets (15-10) are riding a wave of confidence that befits a team still playing at this point on the spring sports calendar, one point has been made abundantly clear to the Jackets by two-time state championship-winning coach Charlie Spivey. That Apex team coming to town at 7 tonight? The one that finished behind the Jackets in the league standings? The one that only got into the playoffs as a wild card? Watch out. “They’ve done something we didn’t do this year,” says Spivey. “They beat both Athens Drive and Holly Springs. We know they’re a good team and that they really play off their emotions. We can’t get caught up into their emotions.” The Cougars (14-11), much like the Jackets, don’t have a glossy win-loss record, and have been on the road the entire postseason. Not expected to hang around the playoffs for long,

Apex instead went on a tear, knocking off a conference champion in Riverside in the opening round. Any of that sound familiar? So no, the Jackets are not overconfident heading into a third meeting against the Cougars this season, despite sweeping the regular season series by a combined score of 12-6. “The last time we played was April 9, so it’s been over a month,” Spivey said. “Their best player (no. 3 hitter Christian Rholl) didn’t play against us the second time. Their lineup has changed.” So has the Jackets’, though. A balanced lineup has continued to be led by run-producer Alex Furl at the plate, and typically, the team doesn’t need a lot of runs when Frye hits the mound. But Lee County has been more than just about the numbers. Second baseman Neal O’Quinn, who hadn’t made an error in nearly two years of varsity baseball, hurt his back several weeks ago and has been out. Spivey moved Carson Wilson from third to second and inserted Grant Brown at third, and the team hasn’t missed a beat defensively. A two-platoon system with catchers Tyler Castleberry and Cody Palmer has gone from a huge question mark at the beginning of the season to

one of the team’s steadying strengths in late May. Frye, who will start tonight, has been lights out for a month while Durazo has been the same, maturing before everyone’s eyes. Closer Trent Clark has added stability at the ends of games. “Our catchers have been as much a part of our success as anybody, but that’s how it’s been for this entire team,” says Spivey. “They understand their roles and accept them. There are no bad attitudes.” But there is excitement, and while Spivey is enjoying being around that again for the first time this deep into the playoffs since the title in 2001, it is a cause for temperament. “The kids are excited; it’s pretty special to be one of the final eight teams left in the state, and having a home game at this point is exciting. “But we do have to guard against the emotion of playing at home,” adds Spivey. “Even though we’ve had more fans than our opponents, it’s different at home. There will be a lot more people there, and you can get caught up in the excitement and lose focus. We just need to relax and play our game.” That’s what’s gotten the Jackets to this point — from low seed to hot team to the doorstep of the state semifinal series.

Your numbers are 6,13,23,27,30,31,42 ARIES (March 21-April 19): Stop worrying about what has already taken place and prepare to put an end to the negativity. Letting matters escalate now will lead to a situation that cannot be reversed. Pleasing everyone will not be easy but can be done if you are willing to compromise. TAURUS (April 20-May 20)): Go after your personal and professional goals. Business prospects are favorable, so stay focused. You don’t have to share your recipe for success; being mysterious will attract more interest. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Enhance your appearance or check out someone who interests you personally or professionally.

Love is in a high cycle, so do everything you can to enhance a relationship that means a lot to you. Push for greater security and comfort and you will find the happiness and the stability you desire. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Be upfront about the way you feel and you will gain popularity. Being accommodating and generous will help you get along in a hostile environment. Listen to complaints and you will find solutions. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): If you have a good

idea that can potentially make you extra cash, implement it immediately. Put your ideas on paper and you will be able to drum up the help and support required to make your dream come true. Love is in the stars. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Avoid any sort of conflict. Getting into a senseless dispute will take its toll and may cost you emotionally. The sympathy you get for handling whatever you face gracefully and without malice will help you win in the end. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Get out with friends or your lover and discuss some of the ideas you want to pursue. The feedback you get will enable you to move quickly toward a goal that may have seemed impossible in the past. Love is looking positive. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): Money, property and living up to the promises you have made will all lead to a better day and good results. Do your best and you will be privy to information to enable you to make financial plans or investments for future security. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): You will get the best results if you speak from the heart. Investing in something that is practical and serviceable will lead to greater income. A love relationship can be enhanced with additional affection and a commitment. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Look at all the angles. Pleasing the one person who has been in your corner all along will be important if you don’t want to jeopardize your relationship. Don’t mistake kindness for love. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You don’t have to get everything done all at once. As long as you begin to chip away at your to-do list, you will make progress. Financial or medical matters will take a favorable turn if you address the agencies or institutions holding information pertinent to your situation.

DEAR ABBY: Regarding your column of April 12, 2010, and the letter about the man who refuses to file tax returns, your answer was only partially correct. In addition to enrolled agents, tax returns are also prepared by other licensed professionals. Certified public accountants are regulated by the various states and do a great deal of tax preparation. Some tax attorneys may prepare income tax returns. The failure to file a tax return could be a crime, in which case the individual would need a tax attorney to represent him in trying to avoid a jail sentence. Communications to tax attorneys may be covered by the attorney-client privilege. In addition, there are practitioners who are qualified both as attorneys and as CPAs. While many enrolled agents may also be CPAs, or even attorneys, you should not have restricted your recommendation to enrolled agents only. — SYDNEY S. TRAUM, JD-CPA, MIAMI BEACH, FLA. DEAR SYDNEY: My thanks to you and the countless other CPAs and attorneys who wrote to correct me. I apologize for the omission. After wading through the tidal wave of mail, I contacted the National Association of Enrolled

Abigail Van Buren Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

Agents (NAEA) for clarification and was told: “There are many outstanding tax practitioners who are attorneys or CPAs, some of whom are members of NAEA. We do not wish to imply in any way that they are less qualified or capable in the field of taxation. We just want to call attention to the profession of enrolled agents and let the public know that they are the only tax practitioners SPECIFICALLY licensed by the Department of the Treasury.” Readers, I hope this straightens out any confusion. Read on: DEAR ABBY: I was intrigued by the letter from the woman whose boyfriend has refused to file tax returns for eight years. In addition to the civil ramifications of refusing

to file the tax return as articulated in your response, it is a federal crime not to file one. An individual who has the requisite income is punishable for up to three years in prison for failure to file a tax return for each year in which he or she is responsible for filing one. Additionally, it can be construed by the government as tax evasion, for which the maximum penalty includes five years imprisonment for each year in which the tax is evaded. — DENNIS C. KAINEN, MIAMI BEACH, FLA. DEAR ABBY: My 12-year marriage to someone just like the man in that letter became a financial disaster. Even though I did file separately, I co-signed home, car and credit card loans with him. It has taken me more than 10 years to regain my good credit and restore my dignity. If she does marry him, he will display immaturity in other areas — as a husband, a father, an employee — and she will look back (as I did) and realize what a horrible mistake she made. She should not ignore this important signpost! Please warn her to wake up before it’s too late. — BEEN THERE, DONE THAT, ROCHESTER, N.Y.

Montana man arrested for 2 DUIs 5 hours apart

Minn. mom gives birth while driving to hospital

MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) — Montana police say a 24-year-old man was arrested twice for drunken driving in the span of five hours. Police say Frank Rees was arrested at about 2:30 a.m. Saturday on suspicion of drunken driving and posted a $500 bond just before 5:30 a.m. About two hours later, Rees was again arrested on suspicion of drunken driving, this time after police reported he hit a parked car. Rees gave a breath sample the first time he was arrested and a blood sample the second as he was taken to the hospital for treatment of injuries suffered in the crash. He pleaded not guilty to both misdemeanor charges in Missoula City Court on Monday.

BEMIDJI, Minn. (AP) — A Minnesota mother has given birth to a baby boy while driving herself to the hospital, with the newborn’s father steering the car from the passenger’s seat. The Pioneer of Bemidji says 29-year-old Amanda McBride was rushing to the hospital Wednesday when suddenly her water broke and the baby “just slid out.” McBride says she was feeling labor pains at work, so she drove to pick up the baby’s father and headed for the hospital. The father, 33-year-old Joseph Phillips, did not drive because he has a history of seizures. Phillips told the newspaper that McBride yelled at him to take the wheel as she cradled the 8 pound baby boy, Joseph Dominick Phillips. Officials at North Country Regional Hospital say they were stunned to learn the expectant mother was driving.

Man bites man in fight over dogs, NY officials say NEW CITY, N.Y. (AP) — It wasn’t quite man-bites-dog, but there were men and there were dogs and there was biting. A sheriff’s office said Monday that one man bit another during a fight over a couple of dogs at a park in suburban New York City. Rockland County sheriff’s Capt. William Barbera says two dog owners got into it Sunday night. One didn’t like the way their pets were playing at a dog park in New City, about 30 miles north of New York. Barbera says that a third man tried to break up the fight and that one of the combatants bit him on the wrist. He says that no one has been arrested but that the case is still being investigated.

Lip tattoo leads to burglary arrest in Colorado PUEBLO, Colo. (AP) — Police say a suspect in a Colorado home invasion had the evidence written all over his face. A tattoo on the upper lip of 20-year-old Anthony Brandon Gonzales led to his arrest last week in the home invasion of an Elvis impersonator in Pueblo County. A witness told police that one of the invaders had “East Side” tattooed on his upper lip. Gonzales also has a “13” tattooed on his chin in the shape of a goatee. According to an affidavit, the tattoos were visible even though Gonzales was wearing a mask. Gonzales was already in jail on a separate drug charge. Police have now charged him with the April burglary, too. Sgt. Eric Bravo said his distinctive tattoo led to the charge, saying, “it’s hard to miss him.” See answer, page 2A

The Bible urges us to be healthy Q: I’m very committed to making sure our family eats healthy foods and gets lots of exercise, but my husband says I’m overdoing it. Does the Bible say anything about living a healthy lifestyle? — Mrs. C.C. A: Yes, the Bible certainly urges us to take care of our bodies. God gave our bodies to us, and He doesn’t want us to abuse them or neglect them. Many of the laws in the Old Testament, for example, warned the people against foods that might be harmful (particularly since they had few ways to keep food from spoiling). The Apostle Paul wrote, “Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you?... Therefore honor God with your body” (1 Corinthians 6:19-20). At the same time, it’s possible to become so absorbed with our physical well-being that we let it take over our lives. When that happens, life can lose its joy and we end up ignoring things that are just as important (or more so). Don’t let this happen to you. Most of all, don’t let your concern for your family’s physical well-being blind you to a far more important issue: their moral and spiritual health. Some day, this life will end — no matter how carefully we take care of our bodies. The Bible says, “Physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come” (1 Timothy 4:8). Put Jesus Christ at the center of your life — both for yourself and your family. Then strengthen your life spiritually every day, as you feed on the “spiritual diet” God has provided for us — the “diet” of God’s Word, prayer, and fellowship with other believers.
